Patterns: American Paris Shawl: A beautiful cape-like shawl that uses a stitch sampler motif to show off long color changes and an asymmetrical structure. The shawl is shaped to drape gently across the back, and stays in place over the shoulders. All loom gauges will work with this pattern. Venetian Lace Wrap: This lovely lacy wrap takes its name from the china pattern with the same lace motif. The wrap is worked in a gently curving shape, that shows of color changing as well as solid yarns. A large gauge loom is not recommended for this pattern. 90 pegs needed. Ahwahnee Sunset Scarf: This striking scarf has a bunting lace edging and garter stitch body. It may be worn as a wrap, shawlette, cowl or long scarf. Size is easily adjusted and the pattern will transfer to a larger or smaller loom. Long color changes show off beautifully with this pattern. Camp Blanket Scarf: This simple garter scarf looks as if you have worked a dozen separate yarns together to create a lovely mosaic. The pattern will work with any size loom.

Very simple to make, and pretty to wear. Any size loom hat may be used for this pattern. Watercolor Cowl: A lovely cowl (or scarf) knit on the bias with a simple garter stripe that shows off multi-colored yarn beautifully. This is a wonderful technique to add to your loom knitting.
